Statement From Blue Goose Pure Foods Regarding Allegations Related to Cericola

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 11, 2015) - At Blue Goose we are committed to providing natural and organic products raised without the use of antibiotics or animal by-products.

Today (June 11), we discovered via a press release that one of our processors, Cericola, has been accused by a terminated employee of mislabeling some conventional chicken products as organic. Cericola has advised Blue Goose that there is no merit to this accusation.

Cericola provides poultry processing services to Blue Goose and other companies and is a fully licensed and federally inspected processor in Ontario. Moreover audits are conducted by various third parties including the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) and CSI (Centre for Systems Integration) to ensure compliance with quality claim adherence and labeling standards.

Cericola has been in compliance with all such audits and inspections related to Blue Goose, during which no issues involving improper labeling, or otherwise have been identified.
